Main focusses

Clinic for Orthopaedics and Accident Surgery: Children's Department

In our clinic, we mainly treat children with Legg–Calvé–Perthes syndrome, spinal column and extremity deformities including clubfoot, and infantile cerebral paresis. Here we have compiled the most important information on these disorders.

Overview of specialist areas:

Legg–Calvé–Perthes is an orthopaedic disorder in children where the femoral head is at times not or only partially supplied with blood. This can then die – the bone is deformed, is generally pushed out from the protection of the acetabular cup and ossifies in this position.
